Shaleiah Fox oversees development and external relations at Black Studies at The University of Texas at Austin, a collective that includes a policy institute, an academic department, two art galleries, and a cultural and programming division.

In 2012, Shaleiah founded Fresh Chefs Society, a non-profit that aims to empower youth transitioning out of the foster care system through the power of food. She is a proud mother of two, an advocate and philanthropist, devoted to building a better community for all through education and female empowerment.
