About Me


Hello! My name is Precious Meshi Nkeih (née Nchifor). I was born in the late 1980s, in Cameroon, Africa and I currently live in the United States.  I am the oldest of five bubbly siblings.

From an early age, I loved the media. During long holidays, I would go to the local radio station in Bamenda, Cameroon to participate in shows. I always knew I wanted to talk/write. In school, my English teachers thought my essays were phenomenal and sometimes used them as examples for the entire class. This made me gain confidence in my ability to write.

When the time came for me to pick a university course, I naturally chose Journalism and Mass Communication, which I pursued for three years at the University of Buea, Cameroon. I took my love for journalism further by obtaining a Master of Arts degree from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka. I visualised myself wearing high-heel shoes and working a corporate journalism-related job.

While I was still dreaming, I fell in love with a brother in a charismatic church. We got married in the August of 2009 and I call him here, Mr N. Mr N and I decided to go into the world and multiply just like God commanded. The result is three hyperactive girls who make me laugh, cry and do everything in-between.

Their appearance in my life inspired me to start this blog. I wanted to be present for them and I also wanted to be present for my passion. Instead of wearing suits and going to an air-conditioned office, I spend my days changing smelly diapers, experimenting (translation: cooking) in the kitchen, and writing things.

This blog is the central part of me, that’s why it is called, “Precious Core”. In it, I take you into teeny tiny worlds that form my one big weird world. I hope we laugh together, cry together, reason together and learn together.

In Precious Diary, I share my true life stories. They include my misadventures, life lessons and my day-to-day struggles.

In Precious Kitchen, I share mouth-watering recipes from Cameroon, Africa, and the rest of the world. Warning; This will make you hungry!

I write on an array of Precious Topics which include, Love and MarriageSinglesParentingBeauty and StyleBloggingNews and Features and Faith. I also happen to have a YouTube Channel where I share my cooking videos.

Perhaps the most important thing you should know about me is that I really love Jesus. Knowing Him is the best thing that happened to me.

I hope you enjoy my blog. Feel free to connect with me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. You could send me a direct email at precious(at)preciouscore(dot)com. Thank you for visiting!
