Gates graduated from Stanford University in 2018 with a degree in human biology and took a year off to focus on her equestrian passion before going to medical school. She told Sidelines Magazine her childhood pediatrician inspired her to pursue medicine.
She’s an accomplished equestrian and has been riding since she was 6. One of her favorite horses is named Alex. “He is super sweet, down-to-earth, easy-going, but you can also go fast and have a lot of confidence, so I am really excited about him,” she told US Equestrian in November 2017.
To support her passion, Gates’ father set about buying property in Wellington, Florida, a hot spot for wealthy equestrians. The Miami Herald reported he dropped $37 million to buy a whole string of properties near Laurene Powell Jobs’ estate.
While she was a student at Stanford, Gates told the Horse Network that balancing school and horseback riding made her life “a little busy, but I love doing both.”

Beyond her education and her horseback riding, Gates also makes time to travel. Her Instagram highlights past trips to Kuwait, Spain, Australia, and other exciting places.
Bill Gates is determined for his children to forge their own paths in life. In 2011, he told The Daily Mail that his kids would each get a “minuscule portion” of his wealth, which Forbes estimates stands at $130.5 billion. “It will mean they have to find their own way,” he said.
The New York Post reported that in 2017, her parents bought a $5 million condo that’s only blocks from her medical school.
