Hitha Palepu is on entrepreneur and author with extensive global experience in the digital media, technology, and travel fields. Her travel experiences began at a very young age; she embarked on her first international trip at six months old and was tasked with packing her own bag before she learned how to ride a bike. During her days traveling the globe, she created Hitha On The Go to share her tips on life and packing stylishly and carry-on only. Originally a hobby, the website grew to be a top destination for women searching for simple, stylish solutions for packing and other lifestyle topics. In 2016, Hitha was approached to author a book that would teach people how to pack perfectly. How to Pack was released in March 2017 by Clarkson Potter. Hitha currently lives in New York with her husband and son. Additionally, she serves as the co-founder of Bridge2Act, a technology startup enabling charitable giving in a rapid, easy, and more informed manner.
