Radhesen Naidoo, honours, actuarial science
Q: Why did you choose freestyling as a hobby?
A: I think it’s pretty cool. It lets me get away from the more serious work that I have to do.
Q: What do you like most about freestyling?
A: It’s sort of a show-off thing, it impresses people when they see me in action and that’s great.
Q: What are the some of the reactions you get from people who watch you?
A: People are really impressed because, as an actuarial science student, many wouldn’t expect me to do this kind of thing.
Q: How long does it take for someone to be a good freestyler?
A: It takes roughly a year to establish yourself but once you’re good it’s easy to learn a new trick.
Q: Who’s got the best tricks between Ronaldinho and Cristiano Ronaldo?
A: Ronaldinho in his prime and the amount of flair he shows is great.
Q: What makes you a proud Witsie?
A: Wits is a great place to develop myself and I also get to interact with people of different cultures.
