We always tell kids to dream big, so it's particularly heartwarming when we see evidence that they're actually listening. Hoping to truly make her dream a reality, a 7-year-old in the UK wrote to Google to express her interest in a job -- and the tech company CEO responded with a heartfelt letter that should inspire us all.
Chloe Bridgewater's proud dad, Andy, shared his daughter's eloquent missive and the encouraging response she received on LinkedIn -- and in just three days, the two have garnered over 160,000 likes.
In her letter, Chloe wrote that she's learning about computers and looking forward to getting a job at Google, where she can "sit on bean bags and go down slides and ride go-karts." Not only does she want a spot at Google, but she also wants to work in a chocolate factory and "do swimming" at the Olympics. Clearly, this 7-year-old possesses an honesty and determination that should motivate all job seekers.
Seriously, we should all have as much ambition as this young lady! Take a look:
