Bella Hadid is on a mission to go from fashion it girl to future Olympian.

Refinery 29 reports that the 18-year-old high fashion model revealed in an interview with Porter magazine that she has her sights set on competing in horseback riding at the 2016 Olympics. As she told the magazine, slaying runways all over the world isn't the only talent Bella inherited from her mother, former model and Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster.

"My devotion stemmed from my mom's love of horses," Bella told Porter. "I have been riding since I could walk and the fact that my mom knew everything about horses really helped my passion grow."

Trying out for the Olympics sounds like a major undertaking, and quite frankly, a scary one. But since Bella spends her free time jumping off yachts with fellow model and friend Kendall Jenner, we seriously doubt she'll let fear keep her from pursuing an Olympic medal.

In fact, she deserves a round of applause in advance for continuing her very own Built By Girls movement. Her Olympic goal shows other young women that there are numerous paths to success and also proves that it's definitely possible to master more than one interest at a time, even if they're on opposite ends of the spectrum.

Good luck, Bella!
