I can’t remember when I wrote my first letter.
I certainly can’t remember my second.
But maybe that’s because I didn’t get a reply.
Chloe Bridgewater sure did:
Here’s the text of Chloe’s letter – the 2nd one she’d ever written, mind you:
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 ride 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 computer one day. I am 7 years old and my teachers tell my mom and dad 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 likes 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 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.

Yes, it’s obvious that she had some help, but this was clearly something Chloe wanted to do. I mean, that letter is hand-written.
Ever try to get a 7 year-old to sit down and do anything, let alone write a full-page letter, that didn’t want to?
Anyhow, she totally got a response:

Thank you so much for your letter. I’m glad that you like computers and robots, and hope that you will continue to learn about technology. I think if you keep working hard and following your dreams, you can accomplish anything you set your mind to — from working at Google to swimming in the Olympics. I look forward to recieving your application when you are finished with school! 🙂
All the best to you and your family.
She did get an offer for work at a chocolate factory in the comments of the Twitter posts, so if she changes her mind, she’s got that going for her.
