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.
