"The comments are positive"
Ellen Mattson tells the story of a culture that she is honored, but that she feels the same time about the new job.
– It's really fun and I feel honestly on my course. But then I am very concerned and concerned about how this will be linked into my writing. But it should go. There are mixed feelings, but there is a good opinion, it says.
She has carefully promoted developments within the Academy and believes that the continuing changes have been important to her accepting the assignment.
-I think the Academy is as important as I want to live. Everyone agrees that change is necessary and that it seems likely that he will continue and for a long time before, a fact that is necessary for me to say, Ellen Mattson says.
"Great grace for Roman art"
