Some kids want to be pilots, some dream of becoming superheroes when they grow up. But seven-year-old Chloe Bridgewater has her eyes on Google- the dream company for many. Enthralled to to see the images of Google offices with their bean bags, go-karts and slides, Chloe from Hereford, UK decided to apply for a job at Google.

Mentioning her special skills like swimming and her plans to work with chocolate factory, Chloe wrote a super cute letter to Sundar Pichai addressing him as as 'google boss' in the letter. Here's the letter shared by her father Andy Bridgewater with Business Insider:

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. I go swimming on Saturday and a Tuesday. My dad said I can sit on bean bags and go down slides and wide go karts in a job in google. I like computers too and have a tablet I play games on. My dad gave me a game where I have to move a robot up and down squares, he said it will be good for me to learn about computers. My dad said he will get me a computers one day. I am 7 years old and my teachers tell my mum and dada I am very good in class and am good at my spelling and reading and my sums. My dad told me if I carry on being good and learning then one day I will be able to have a job at google. My sister Hollie is also very clever but she like doll and dressing up, she is 5. My dad told me to give you a application to get a job in google. I don't really knwo 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.

The letter caught the attention of Sundar Pichai, who replied her back with an encouraging note. Here's what Pichai wrote:

Dear Chloe,

Thank you so much for your letter. I'm glad that you like computers and robots, an hope that you will continue to learn about technology. I think if you keep working hard and follow your dreams, you can accomplish everything you set your mind to-from working at Google to swimming in the Olympics. I look forward to receiving your job application when you are finished with school.

All the best to you and your family.



Andy shared the letter on LinkedIn stating that Chloe had met with an accident few years back and the letter from Pichai has helped her regain her confidence to a large extent.

"She lost a great deal of confidence after being knocked down by a car a couple of years ago. However, to say she is delighted after receiving this letter signed by Sundar Pichai himself is an understatement. She is now even more eager to do well at school and work for Google. 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, " he wrote in a LinkedIn post.
