Soup & Hope with Hei Hei Depew

Thursday, February 4, 2021 at 12:15pm to 12:45pm

Virtual Event

The 14th annual winter series of stories to nourish a spirit of hope!

Hei Hei Depew, who is a Financial Analyst and Chair of the Employee Assembly at Cornell, will talk about how she chooses to be hopeful in the face of life’s difficulties.


Soup & Hope is an annual winter series that—for over a dozen years—has served up heart-warming stories of hope during the coldest months at Cornell. Each story is unique, reflecting different cultural, spiritual, and philosophical perspectives and lived experiences. These stories of hope have come from Cornell staff, faculty, students, alumni as well as members of the local community.

Mark your calendar now for the 2021 season. 
This year’s dates and speaker bios are now available online. You are warmly invited to heat up your favorite soup and join us for six more talks—this year on Zoom!
