Huang began following the spiritual practice of Falun Gong 24 years ago while he was senior class president at Tsinghua University, one of the top universities in China.

After the 1999 crackdown, Huang and other students at Tsinghua University were barred from registering for classes and were sent home to “reflect” on their choice to practice Falun Gong. After being readmitted to classes three months later, Huang was suspended from the university because he continued to practice Falun Gong.

It was during this time that William went to petition at Tiananmen Square.
