Wow what an amazing & humbling day. I can’t thank all of #winnipeg enough for their extremely warm welcoming and support. I am really blown away. I’ve always said Winnipeg has the greatest people, and that was confirmed in these past two days. I had SO much fun doing all the media today!! Did 11 interviews and still have one more to go to complete the day. Thanks again everyone for all their support it means the world to me!! Remember to always go after your dreams and never give up ? love you all! #winnipegrocks #friendlymanitoba #ilovemyfans #amberbalcaenracing
