    Rams running back Blake Corum recently got engaged to Makiah Shipp. Here's everything you need to know about Corum's fiancée and the couple's relationship.

    Los Angeles Rams running back Blake Corum is currently trying to make the transition from college to the NFL. However, that’s not the only big change in his life, as the national champion also just got engaged to Makiah Shipp.

    Here’s everything you need to know about Corum’s fiancée and the couple’s relationship.

    Who Is Makiah Shipp?

    Makiah Shipp is an award-winning author, public speaker, civic engagement activist, and social-justice and youth advocate. She was born on Aug. 21, 2002, in Detroit.

    She has become a notable activist, and her website mentions that she’s “dedicated to empowering young Black girls through storytelling.”

    When she was 18 years old, she was appointed to the Ann Arbor Independent Community Police Oversight Commission.

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

    Shipp states that 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 uses her voice and platform to call out injustices and inequalities while also promoting literacy and female empowerment.

    A Look At Corum and Shipp’s Relationship Timeline

    The couple officially began seeing each other in early 2022 while they were both students at Michigan. 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.

    Shortly after Shipp and Corum started dating, he completed his first 1,000-yard campaign for the Wolverines, finishing the season with 1,463 yards and 18 touchdowns. Corum then scored an astonishing 27 rushing touchdowns during the national championship run.
