Basketball taught Phoebe Poon a lot of life lessons and motivations both on and off the court. Phoebe admires the joy of pursuing championships with her teammates. She would feel fulfilled every time she’s able to work out on the skills needed on the court. Phoebe emphasises on the importance of sportsmanship when trying to win each game even when your team is losing.
Phoebe is the Vice President, Business Development / Community Builder / Civic Liker at LikeCoin Foundation. LikeCoin builds base layer infrastructure to realign Creativity and Rewards on the Internet through Blockchain. They partner with a lot of online media in the APAC region and combat fake news using IPFS. At work, Phoebe would create contents, manage partnerships and build business strategies at LikeCoin.
Phoebe made great friendships through basketball and helped her settle in U.S during her college years in Seattle, Washington. Phoebe started playing basketball when she was 12 and followed Kobe Bryant’s game as an inspiration. She’s been a long time Los Angeles Lakers and Kobe Bryant fan ever since she started playing basketball.
Phoebe would always put on Kobe Bryant's highlight videos to get inspired and sometimes she would even follow some of his training and moves.
This is Phoebe’s second season with FTBL and BODL. In season one, Phoebe’s best game was when she made the last free throw shot to win the game against FHub. It was an intense game that had everyone’s heart skip a beat. Phoebe recalled this as her best game and moment with FTBL.
Phoebe would always be proud whenever BODL starts cheering and getting hyped up. This helped Phoebe and her teammates to create a strong bond and relationship on and off the court. “You don’t get a lot of chances to meet new people in a fun environment other than at a work setting” Phoebe said.
Through FTBL, Phoebe built a lot of friendships and bond with new people. “It is a great bonding event for companies” said Phoebe. Don’t forget to follow Phoebe and BODL during their games!
