Of course it is.  Conceptually you're not supposed to think of it that
way, but a string is stored in memory as a series of bytes.

What he's asking for many not be very useful or practical, but if that's
your problem here than then that's what you should be addressing, not
pretending that it's fundamentally impossible.
