A few months after participating in the "Silver Easel" Anhelina successfully presented her diploma work and graduated from the Transcarpathian Academy of Arts. However, the girl noticed that she did not stop learning because every person and artist, in particular, should constantly improve himself, strive to learn something new and useful. "The main thing that I started to do after the contest is to deeply study the history of art, in particular, Ukrainian art. The graduation does not mean that I will stop to broaden my mind," she said.

Anhelina admitted that she hadn’t been aimed to the victory, as the contest gave her much more: "I was going to evaluate my level of skills in comparison to other young people, artists. Of course, I still have a long way to go! The contest encourages working more actively and persistently in the future! I was especially inspired by the meeting with the famous talented artists, curators and gallery owners! I sincerely admit: this is the largest prize of the contest to get acquainted with the true creators of contemporary art of Ukraine! One needs to look up to them!"
