…Tell me what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?
Igho & Me
…is for the person in progress
You are art
Your life is art
And ‘art’ is not artful because it is perfect. It is artful because of it’s imperfections.
Ultimately, there is no “right” or “perfect” way to make or present yourself in the world. You can only get it wrong if you don’t TRY. And just like the best ideas come from being in the process, you’ll find that the best parts of you will unfold itself when you step into the light. Sometimes, that’s precisely what scares us.
And that’s what I want to help you with!
Igho & Me is a resource for personal growth, self love & lifestyle design. Here, you’ll find inspiring and practical content, curated to help you create an intentional life tailored to your own path.
You’ll figure it out! Keep your heart open.
“your life is already artful; waiting, just waiting for you to make it art”Toni Morrison
My name is Igho /e-go/ and I’m a multipassionate content creator, learner and entrepreneur. I’ve worked professionally as a pharmacist, professor, writer, medical editor, fashion designer, and more.
I create content and lifestyle resources on what I’ve learned so far and that will empower you to create your best life.
I’m never as serious as I often look 😄. I believe my strength comes from knowing how much God loves me. I’m a firm believer in resting, self-reflection, taking things slow and living intentionally. That is my only “hustle”. I’m usually a little bit anxious (about everything) but I’ve done more in my life than I thought I was capable of. I learned that I’m a lot braver than I think, and I believe you are too. So, if you:
- love to create (sew/paint/design/make) or just explore the depths of your being;
- want become more confident about your self, your interests, and what makes you happy;
- want to make the world a little brighter for those in your circle,
then I think we can work on it together.
I know the fear that comes with being vulnerable or admitting that you just have no idea how life works, so you’re not alone.
We can do this, me and you. I believe in us!

Omonigho “igho” Eferere is a Full-time medical editor and content creator. Her work is inspired by the belief that we can create our own lives, and that we should all experience the privilege of sharing and celebrating our creativity with one another.
Igho is originally from Lagos, Nigeria, and currently resides in the New York Metropolitan Area. Her educational background includes a BPharm in Pharmaceutical Sciences and MPH from the CUNY School of Public Health; both have very little to do with what she’s doing now 😄. She spent the first couple of years of her professional life in the healthcare industry (link to CV) as a pharmacist, and then as a college professor, while sewing her own clothes in her spare time.
In 2018, Igho & Me – formerly Love, Igho – was created with an initial focus on DIY, fashion & styling. However, it has since evolved into a place for curating hand-made wardrobe and home/interiors projects and inspiration. Igho is a self-taught sewist and sees DIY’ing as a way to connect, learn new skills, and create unique and personal pieces.
While Igho’s goal is to motivate and inspire her audience to shut out the noise, and live a more intentional lifestyle, her other goal is to show that a great life can be lived in spite of fear and self-doubt – especially in this age of information overload. These are her own struggles, and she hopes that by sharing her triumphs & trials, she can encourage others to take small but bold steps too. Through her content, Igho hopes to encourage her audience to live a life that they are satisfied with, with no regrets.
In her free time, Igho is usually singing and dancing (in private), reading, learning a new hobby, watching a lot of TV, walking, and overthinking.
