Who Is Blake Corum’s Girlfriend? Everything You Need To Know About Makiah Shipp

Here's everything to know about former Michigan star running back Blake Corum's girlfriend, Makiah Shipp.

Blake Corum is entering the 2024 NFL Draft wondering who will take a chance on a 5’8″ national championship running back.

Corum will soon be waiting to find out which NFL team he’ll be joining with his girlfriend by his side. Learn more about his girlfriend and relationship with Makiah Shipp.

Does Blake Corum Have a Girlfriend?

Some draft prospects have girlfriends with a strong celebrity presence on social media. Other prospects like Corum, though, are dating women with a different kind of fame.

Shipp does indeed have a renowned presence. But it involves using her voice, words, and penmanship.

Shipp is a social justice and youth advocate located in Detroit. She was born on Aug. 21, 2002, in the Motor City. But she’s chosen to use her talents for a different cause that she has emblazoned on her website:

“Dedicated to empowering young Black girls through storytelling.”

Shipp has become an award-winning author, public speaker, and civic engagement activist. She earned one significant accolade in Ann Arbor when she was 18 and appointed to the Ann Arbor Independent Community Police Oversight Commission.

Then, at 20, Shipp became a best-selling book author in writing “Makiah’s Show and Tell.” Her story centered around a young girl who teaches other children the significance of Black natural hair in Black culture.

As Shipp states, her character “reminds those around her of how important it is to be conscious of how they talk about and/or interact with her hair to avoid being microaggressive and inappropriate.”

Shipp is active in her community as a speaker who uses her voice to call out injustices and inequalities while also promoting literacy and female empowerment.

A Look At Corum and Shipp’s Relationship Timeline

Have Corum and Shipp been together for a lengthy period?

As Michigan students, the couple officially began seeing each other in early 2022. While Corum became a beloved football star for the Wolverines and Shipp rose to fame for her activist work, both are rather low-key when it comes to their relationship.

However, they’ve established themselves within Michigan through their work. Corum especially became beloved on the Ann Arbor campus and the entire state for helping end the Wolverines’ 26-year national title drought this past season.

During the time Shipp and Corum started dating, he completed his first 1,000-yard campaign for the Wolverines — which was complete with 1,463 yards and 18 touchdowns. Shipp then joined the rest of the Michigan fan base and college football world in watching Corum score an astonishing 27 rushing touchdowns during the national championship run.
