Jennifer Gates, 25, is the eldest child of philanthropists Bill and Melinda Gates.
Gates is set to receive a "minuscule portion" of her father's wealth.
She's currently enrolled in Mount Sinai's Icahn School of Medicine.
Jennifer Gates is one of three children of Bill Gates and Melinda French Gates.
The 25-year-old is an established equestrian, enjoys traveling, and is currently studying medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City.
Here's what the life of the billionaire Microsoft cofounder's eldest daughter is like.
Jennifer Gates, 25, is the eldest daughter of Bill Gates and Melinda French Gates.
She has two younger siblings, Rory and Phoebe.
Gates wasn't allowed to own a phone until she was 14.
While their father might be famous for founding Microsoft, Entrepreneur reported that the Gates kids had a "cap on screen time" growing up.
Gates and her siblings attended her father's alma mater.
They all went to Seattle's private Lakeside High School.

Gates graduated from Stanford University in 2018.
She earned 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 said in a February 2021 Instagram post that her parents also sparked her passion for 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.
Gates' father has supported her passion.
He 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.
Gates has competed against Eve Jobs.
She's also gone up against other famous show jumpers born to celebrities and high-profile figures, like Michael Bloomberg's daughter Georgina, Bruce Springsteen's daughter Jessica, and Steven Spielberg's daughter Destry.
She said it was a balancing act in college.
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."

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 $116 billion.
"It will mean they have to find their own way," he said.
Gates is enrolled at Mount Sinai's Icahn School of Medicine.
Gates told The Chronicle of the Horse in March 2020 that all of her medical-school classes had been temporarily moved online because of the coronavirus.
Her parents have property nearby.
The New York Post reported that in 2017, her parents bought a $5 million condo that's only blocks from her medical school.

She got engaged in early 2020, and married last October.
In January 2020, Gates announced her engagement to the renowned Egyptian equestrian Nayel Nassar. Nassar also attended Stanford University. "I can't wait to spend the rest of our lives learning, growing, laughing, and loving together," she wrote on Instagram at the time.
They married in October 2021.
Gates and Nassar are both riders for Paris Panthers.
It's a show-jumping team founded by Gates, who also manages the team. In 2019, they competed and placed ninth in the Global Champions League.
Gates has also expressed an interest in using her privilege to help others.
"I was born into a huge situation of privilege," Gates recently told Sidelines Magazine in an interview for the publication's July 2020 issue, "and I think it's about using those opportunities and learning from them to find things that I'm passionate about and hopefully make the world a little bit of a better place."
