Phoebe told MCV Pacific about her first inclusion on the Women in Games list, “Being included in the 2018 Women is Games List was so humbling, it has inspired me to redouble my efforts in my career and as a feminist. To be a part of the force of women shaping the Australian games industry is simply awe-inspiring.”
