6 Spring 2019 | Wake Forest 27587 Magazine Hillsborough St. a lesson in itself As an undergraduate at NC State, I've been taught a lot about who I am and who I'm meant to be. ere have been so many experiences I've gone through while living in Raleigh for the past three years, and a lot of them involve Hillsborough Street. When I first moved here, I lived at North Hall right on Hillsborough Street, and I became acquainted with all the street had to offer rather quickly. Being my first time away from my family, I remember feeling homesick, and I struggled to find a place to fit in. I started hanging out at the coffee shops on the street and found myself talking to people while in line, and I was making acquaintances. Soon, recognizing faces at some of my favorite places on Hillsborough Street made me feel a lot less lonely, and that's when it clicked. I wasn't shy anymore, and I had absolutely no problem having a conversation with a friendly stranger no matter where I went. You see, Hillsborough Street is quite special to me because it forced me to come out of my comfort zone, and I couldn't be more grateful. It gave me a chance to grow as an individual and provided me with skills I can transfer over to my professional career. ank you for shining a spotlight on this amazing part of the community. It has taught me a lot about myself. Hillsborough Street can be an amazing place to create life-changing experiences. You just have to be willing to give it a chance.
