Former UP Baller Bea Daez-Fabros dubs as the first WNBL ambassador
From hard court to off-courts, it is no mistake that Bea Daez- Fabros has been moving for her name and making her own history as she is now the face of the Women's National Basketball League (WBNL).
She got what it takes to serve as the voice of all the female ballers in WNBL.
“This has been a dream for almost all female ballers, so I’ll do everything I can to help make the league flourish and make the talents of female ballers shine through the league,” she shared.
Bea had it all by having beauty and brains. She was one of the passers of the 2016 CPA Board Examinations.
She was also part of the Gilas Pilipinas women’s team that played in the Jones Cup and the FIBA Women’s Asia Cup. She was also a member of the squad that claimed its first-ever SEA Games Gold Medal last year.
Moreover, she brought her game to the commentators’ booth, became one of the original hosts on Upfront at the UAAP, and was also named as the first-ever female basketball analyst of the UAAP back in 2017.
It was a dream redemption for this 5-foot-1 guard because she thought that her passion for basketball would just be all in the past as she just recently had her first baby with her husband.
“I was so shocked because I just recently had my first baby and thought that my basketball career would stop already. But I guess I was wrong. I welcome the opportunity with open arms because it has really been my goal to do everything I can to help grow women’s basketball,” said Daez-Fabros.
Yet, it seems that this is not the end for her as NBL executive director Rhose Montreal tossed the offer to Bea to become the ambassador of WNBL in which she accepted with open arms.
“This has been a dream for almost all female ballers, so I’ll do everything I can to help make the league flourish and make the talents of female ballers shine through the league,” she propounded.
While Bea being the first ambassador, this is also true for WNBL as it is also the first-ever professional league for women.
