When you were seven, you probably never put too much effort into landing your future job. At this age, the main concerns in life are which cartoons to watch before school or how to convince your mom to buy you a new toy. However, you were probably asked that big question when you were a kid: “What do you want to be when you grow up?”
In the case of 7-year-old Chloe Bridgewater, toys and cartoons were not important. While many people don’t apply for lifelong careers until their mid-twenties, Chloe had already sent in an application letter to Google expressing her desire to work there. Much to Chloe’s surprise, Google’s CEO actually responded, and he did so in the sweetest way possible!
Meet Andy and daughter Chloe Bridgewater, of Hereford, UK.
She wrote a letter addressed to the “Google Boss,” expressing her desire to work at Google.
Here’s a copy of her handwritten letter to Google:
A few days later, she received this reply from Google’s CEO himself, Sundar Pichai.
Andy Twitter posts about the interaction went viral, bringing out powerful responses.
Many praised CEO Pichar for taking the time to read and answer Chloe’s letter.
Responses to the story also applaud Chloe for being so driven at such a young age.
It’s not every day that your adolescent child sends in a letter of intent to his or her dream job, so it comes as no surprise that Andy Bridgewater wanted to share this incredible story online. His posts have earned thousands of likes and shares on his Twitter and LinkedIn accounts, and Chloe is now being adorably referred to as “Google Girl.”
