Dagblad van het Noorden reports that Bolt has only been a professional model for a year and half, but she is rapidly rising through the international ranks. In a recent appearance on the national talk show RTV Late Night, Bolt said that her studies are her top priority and she evaluates her academic schedule from one week to the next to see if she can fit in modelling jobs. This film was shared on Twitter capturing Bolt’s reaction to hearing that she had gotten the job in the Victoria’s Secret show.
