A letter from one of our international supporters

“I just wanted to say that I think you will add value to many lives, including mine”

Have you ever received an email, a call or a message that gives you a boost of energy and happiness? 

Today, we wanted to share with you one of those emails that landed on our inbox. So without further ado, here is the email (some bits have been edited to keep names private)

Dear Team of Friend Theory,

Maybe this is something you read every day, maybe it is not. Anyways, I needed something to say to give you even more positivity to fulfil your dream of Friend Theory.

I’m a 21-year-old Dutch girl that loves adventures, meeting new people and getting to know their stories (and sometimes I am a Bachelor student in Rotterdam).

I found out about Friend Theory through a video I saw on the Facebook page of a friend of mine, which I met during my exchange last year. I was immediately very impressed by your idea, videos and the story behind you and realised myself how big you already are and will become even more.

Nowadays, while I am graduating this year, I am looking for an internship to test and explore myself in the field of Business or whatever other adventure will make me explore more about myself, my qualities and will let me contribute to other people’s lives.

Because you are still in the development phase, I realise that perhaps an intern is not the thing you are waiting for. However, after having found out about Friend Theory, you got stuck in my head and I felt the urge to send you an email anyway.

It’s now around 3:00 am in the Netherlands, just so you know.

Thinking about Friend Theory and internships made me realise that this platform could serve endless purposes. For example, by finding an internship or a job abroad. Sometimes asking a total stranger is easier, than asking a friend, while you have nothing to lose and only benefits can arise, like becoming new friends.

For now, I just wanted to say that I think you will add value to many lives, including mine. My dream was always to learn to surf in Australia, which I am planning to do next year. Because of your platform this could become easier for me, more adventurous, cheaper and easily lets me get to know more people. Thank you for that!

You could always ask me something, as I am ready to help. I would love to share Friend Theory to the rest of the world! In the end, all we need is a friend, right?!

Keep up the good work and all the best and luck,

To everyone that has sent us messages, we want to thank you all for your support and for constantly believing in this great idea that’s slowly becoming a thing.
