    4/4 When asked if she ever visits Poland, Ela said only for short periods of time during holidays. She said sometimes the dining hall serves perogies and that reminds her of home, since it is a Polish food. “I miss my country but my family is here”. 3/4 Ela never went to college, but wanted her kids to achieve a higher education. She has four children: three girls, one boy. They all went to Rutgers. One of her kids is still at Rutgers and is graduating this year. Although they all went to Rutgers, she said she never saw them much around campus because she was always so busy with her job, and they were busy with classes. 2/4 “I work in the pantry. I do everything for the salad bar.” Ela said she always found herself in the kitchen growing up. “I cut vegetables and fruits and do everything I wanted to”, she said. When she came to America, a friend recommended this job to her. She has been at Rutgers for about 15 years. When asked what she thought about her job, her face lit up with a smile, “I love this place. I love working with kids”, she said several times throughout the interview. Although she’s been here for a long time, she said she wants to continue working here, because she loves it so much. She said she couldn’t see herself being anywhere else because this job combines her interest of cooking and being around children. 1/4 Ela Zambrzycka was born in Poland. When I met her, she laughed at the fact that she was chosen to do the interview because she said her English “is no good”. She has been in America for about 20 years, because her husband’s father became a citizen and started bringing his family to the country. She works at the Neilson Dining Hall at Rutgers University.
