Gianluca,  Thank you for taking your time to reply to my request.
Last night, after I sent my original email below, I was directed to the fedora page on "how to be sponsored".  I'm glad to say the web page below agrees with your advice.  Had I known this before, I would not have sent this email request.
Thank you,

My recommendation to quickly find a sponsor is to submit your first
package and immediately start reviewing other people packages (the
review queue in bugzilla[1] is long enough you will find something of
interest and/or appropriate difficulty level).

Once you have some reviews (at this point, not yet official) in your
belt, ask again for a sponsor, possibly in fedora-devel list where I
guess you will find more.

And when you get sponsored, you can also approve the pre-reviewed
packages so everyone benefits!

Good luck
