Multi-billionaire Bill Gates’ daughter thinks about becoming a GP – she wants to do something to make the world a better place

In an interview with Sidelines Magazine, Jennifer Gates, the eldest daughter of Bill and Melinda Gates, talks about the benefits of growing up in opulence.

“I was greatly privileged by birth,” she says. “I have to use those opportunities to learn and to make the world a bit better.”

Jennifer graduated from Stanford University in 2018 and now studies medicine at Mount Sinai’s Icahn School of Medicine. She explains to Sidelines that a pediatrician from her youth was her role model.

Thanks to this doctor, who inspired her to study medicine, she realized how privileged she was. She is considering becoming a pediatrician or family doctor herself, but says she is also open to other career paths.

“I want to keep learning and sharing things with people,” she says. “Although people experience things differently, there is something universal about the way we deal with happiness, adversity and change. Being open to other people’s experiences helps me become a better doctor and make the world a better place.”
