There are always wee fans writing to the people they look up to, I remember doing it myself as a child. Although even at that age you have to be realistic and expect the fact that your role models may not reply back. Chloe Bridgewater who was very eager to hear from Google sent a letter to Google’s boss, Sundar Pichai.
Chloe’s dad sent the message to Business Insider, and it continues to go viral due to it’s straightforwardness and delightful fantasy.
Dear Google Boss,
My name is Chloe and when I am bigger I would like a job with Google. I also want to work in a chocolate factory and do swimming in the Olympics. … My dad told me if I carry on being good and learning then one day may I will be able to have a job at Google. …
My dad told me to give you an application … I don’t really know what one of them is but he said a letter will do for now. Thank you for reading my letter, I have only ever sent one other and that was to Father Christmas. Good bye.
-Chloe Bridgewater, Age 7
Chloe is definitely on the right track! Chloe’s dad Andy Bridgewater stated in a LinkedIn article that Google is in fact inundated with “bean bags, go-karts, and slides”. Andy outlined that those components of excitement were all Chloe needed for motivation.
The far greater surprise followed as the Google boss actually answered.
The Google CEO proclaimed, “I look forward to receiving your job application when you are finished with school” .
The young girl recently dealt with an injury which had gotten her down, but as indicated by her Dad, this letter added a great deal of self-esteem back to Chloe.
“She is now even more eager to do well at school and work for Google,” Andy remarked. “Can’t thank such a busy person enough to take time out to make a little girl’s dream become one step closer, although not sure she’s fully aware that it’ll take more than riding go-karts and sleeping in pods to make it with Google!”
