Tesla founder Elon Musk has replied to the 10-year-old schoolgirl's letter through a tweet sent by her father. Bria asked her father to post her letter on Twitter so it would be easier for Musk to respond. Her father did it and told the Tesla founder that it was for a school project.

"Elon, my daughter wrote you a letter for a school project. She mailed it to Tesla, but I figured I'd paste here. Thank you!" Bria's father Steven Loveday posted on Twitter. Loveday writes for InsideEVs.com and U.S. News & World Report.

In Bria's letter, she suggested that Musk should run a homemade commercial competition for Tesla. Bria said that she noticed that he did not advertise the car but many people were making it. She even commended the commercials saying they were very good. “So I think that you should run a competition on who can make the best homemade Tesla commercial and the winners will get their commercial aired," Bria wrote in her letter.

The schoolgirl said that she was able to watch fan-made commercials because her father has shown it to her. Bria added that her father is an auto writer, and he has introduced Tesla and solar energy to her.

Bria pointed out in her letter about the benefits of running a competition. “The cool part is that you still won’t be taking the time and money to advertise for yourself. Plus, this is something your fans and customers will definitely love. You could give the winners a year of free Supercharging or a Model 3 Easter egg or something,” Bria wrote.

She ended the letter saying that her dad was going to send the letter on Twitter. "It would be so cool if you could hook me up with a Tesla t-shirt," a postscript Bria wrote.

"Thank you for the lovely letter. That sounds like a great idea. We'll do it," Musk replied on Twitter. He replied about an hour after Loveday tagged him.

It was not the first time that a child sent a letter to a company CEO. In February, Chloe Bridgewater's letter to Google's CEO became viral. The seven-year-old child submitted an application through Google careers page stating that she wanted to get a job from the company. She waited for days before receiving a reply from the company's CEO Sundar Pichai.

However, the CEO rejected the application at the meantime. “I think if you keep working hard and following your dreams, you can accomplish everYthing you set your mind to. I look forward to receiving your job application when you are finished with school,” Pichai replied. Bridgewater's father shared the replied on LinkedIn.
