Bill Gates' daughter revealed to her followers that she "knew I needed to give myself a break to rest and recharge," adding it "wasn’t an easy choice," especially because of the work ethic that was drilled into her at a young age.

"I am so used to leaning in to the hustle, but I feel good about it and am proud of how I found my way through this decision," Jennifer explained.
