I am new here and I have applied to 10 job proposals so far but I have not received any response from any of them. I just wanted to ask: How many proposals did you send before getting your first job here? Anyone who wants to share their first time experience with Upwork? I am feeling a bit demotivated, I wish I could know why people are not responding to my proposals...

That doesn't strictly make sense. You're saying that Alketa is in a place of high supply and high price! In reality markets tend to be roughly at the equilibrium position, where supply equals demand, i.e. where the dotted line is. The graphs represent the total market supply and demand as a function of price, and it doesn't make sense to locate an individual at any particular point.
Economics !ecture over. Thank you for listening.
Also as a newbie I can say that its about 10% hit rate for me. 30 Proposals got me 3 candidancies. Not to mention 2 of the 3 took over a week to get a responce from the client. 10% seems to be the norm and acceptable.
when I was beginning in Upwork I had to send more than 60 proposals before get hired by a client, so you shouldn't be demotivated,you only need to have more patience
