Portraits and Memories of Immigrant
Finding Home is a celebration of people from other countries who have resettled in New Hampshire. She transcribed the memories of 40 immigrants of life in the home country and the journey to find a new life. The immigrants’ stories and Becky’s photographs show the beauty and vitality of cultural diversity that contributes to all our communities.
Different Roots, Common Dreams Scholarship Fund
A former university professor, NH photographer Becky Field saw the strong emphasis that immigrant families put on education. Yet students often lack the financial resources to complete a 4-year degree. In 2017 Becky partnered with New Hampshire Charitable Foundation to start the Different Roots, Common Dreams Scholarship Fund to help those who came to New Hampshire as refugees or immigrants and want a four-year undergraduate degree. Since it started, many generous donors have helped to make this scholarship grow.
