Hello Everyone, I am Sagar from India and today I have got a chance to tell you all about My Mi Story, the journey of a Mi fan from the fan club to the MIUI Global forum.
Can you guess the above picture...? Yes, It's me Sagar_Prasad giving my autograph on my first fan meet which was organized in my city Vizag. So are you guys excited to read my Mi story ?? Hope you all will have a good time while reading the story.
Started my journey with Redmi 1S in 2014
My first screenshot from my Redmi 1s
Coming to my story, the journey with Xiaomi began from the day I bought Redmi 1s for my friend. I came to know from my friend about the Redmi 1S which is a dual-SIM smartphone powered by Qualcomm snapdragon 400 Cortex-A7 Quad-core processor, clocked at 1.6 GHz and Adreno 305 GPU, and sports with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage. The device features a 4.7-inch 720p IPS screen with 312ppi and Asahi dragontrail glass protection, 8-megapixel camera with flash and a secondary 1.6-megapixel unit on the front.
I bought Redmi 1S for my friend first, on its first sale on Flipkart. But after receiving the phone, I fell in love with it and on the urge of buying one for myself I bid adieu to my old Nokia Lumia 510. But as you all know when such budget phone comes to market, it gets a little tricky to get it on flash sales due to the high demand. So after two or three attempts, finally I acquired my beloved Redmi 1s. From the above screenshot I shared, you can see I got my Redmi 1S on 26-9-2014. I was not aware of the Mi acount creation and all initially. Later I found out how to create Mi Account and how to use the MIUI Official Forum.
Joined MIUI CHINA BETA TEAM
I joined the MIUI CHINA BETA TEAM on 13-01-2016 on MIUI Forum. I was so excited to join such special teams and with my time in the beta team, I learned a lot. From flashing daily updates to discussing bugs and new features weekly. As I was new to android i learned how to Root, Custom Recovery and many other things. This experience helped me in improving my communication skill too. And not to mention, above all, i made many friends. It was a very good experience as a beta team member and a privilege to flash daily OTA and update device before others getting them.
After Joining the Special team i have met some people from my city visakhapatnam (vizag) even i met some other people on Fan Meet. As, this was my first fan meet i was super excited. It was really an amazing experience to had a Video Conference Call with Manu Kumar Jain Sir. Even we had some hands on new products like Mi Wifi Router, Mi Band 2 and many other products. After attending the Fan event, i started loving MI more and more because till now i didn't see any other brands to organize and set up such fan clubs.
We had a Grand Mi India Tour and Voting was done in order to select some cities. One of them was Vizag, my city.
We were very happy to have a Mi Grand Tour in our city. We were honored to have Jai Mani sir as our special guest. We had many Fan Activities like Singing chairs, Skipping and had a Lucky draw for Mi5. The fan meet was for the launch of Mi 5 and hands-on experience.
We had finally done our first Mi Grand tour in vizag we have enjoyed it a lot and having fun with friends and new people. For more details and photos plz check the thread link
Selected as a MIUI NEWS TEAM Member
After sucessfully completing the Mi Grand Tour in vizag i have met some people while usually discussing Xiaomi. As, on that time i dont know how to create a thread so I have asked @Deleep who was a previous News Team member he helped me and guide me how to create a thread. Having the knowledge from him, i created a thread which was sticked to level 3. I was very very happy and was thankful to him.
Later, when there was News Team Recruitment going on in the forum, i applied and got selected in the News Team on April 11th 2016. In my time as a News Team Member, i posted many threads. With each passing day, posting new and new threads became my favourite job to do. It was a great feeling to see MIUI NEWS TEAM under my name. I have posted many threads under News Section and some were highlighted to Level 3. While Joining News Team i have also created some original threads. Some are:Newbie Guide For MIUI NEWS TEAM MEMBERS
After getting Selected as MIUI NEWS Team Member. I have created many quality threads and have passed the assessment three times. Got Medal of Industrious Reporter for passing News Team three months in a Row and was a Top Performer.
In the Grand Mi Tour we got to know about Mi Fan Clubs. Mi Fan Clubs are made up by Mi Fans, for Mi Fans. It's where passionate, like-minded Mi Fans come together in their local communities and take part in Mi-related activities. There are 120 Mi Fan Clubs in China and we globally have fan clubs in Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Indonesia. Everything is organized and planned by the fans.
Vizag is called as city of destiny and it is 5th cleanest city in INDIA. The most exciting news is that Mi had setup the First Make In India plant in Visakahapatnam and also hosted the First make in india phone Redmi 2 Prime launch in Novotel in 2015. The First Fan meet in Vizag was with full of fun and enjoyment as you can see the above picture. I am one of them from the left 3rd Person with Pink t-shirt.

Mi Pop Festival 2016 in India
Mi Pop is Xiaomi's official mega event to bring Mi Fans together for a day of Fun and Games. Since 2012, Xiaomi has been organizing such events in various cities such as Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen. Mi Pop has also extended beyond Mainland China an become a global-wide event bringing joy to cities like Taiwan and Singapore. Each event is celebrated together with 300-500 Mi Fans, and they stand to participate in Lucky draws, Games, Performances and other interactive activities.
For Lucky Draws, Mi fans often get to walk away with Mi products like Mi Phones, Mi Bands and even Mi TV! In every Mi Pop Event, distinguished celebrities or famous groups will be invited to perform, Mi Fans will be greatly entertained by the highly energetic sing and dance show put up for them. Very often, Xiaomi co-founders and executives will turn up at the show as guests to interact with our Mi Fans. I was very Lucky to be one of them. It was one of the most awaited events i have been selected to go to Mumbai to watch Mi Pop. I was very happy with it and met many peoples in personally but couldn't take many photographs as we totally floating in mi pop event with joy.
I have got a chance to take a picture with our Global Vice President, Manu Kumar Jain. Can you recognize me in the above picture? I am in the down showing my Mi Pop bag. Really it was one of the greatest events i have ever been.

Whenever i go to an event, i always take some pictures in order to capture some of my sweetest memories.
Can you see me in the above pic? i am sitting on the left side of a Yellow shirt man. He is my brother from Vizag Fan Club. As usual, we were having some fun on the event and enjoying.
I got a chance to meet my mate @spjain and took a selfie with him. At that time i was an intern moderator and got a chance to post about Mi pop thread, he guided me and gave me some of the tips to become a moderator. @spjain has resigned from a moderator but I miss him, in fact we all miss him. He was the first moderator i met in person. Miss you in the group, hope to see you back soon bro.
Finally, the mi pop festival comes to an end with loads of joy and great moments spent with some amazing people and lot of good memories. I loved it very much and can't express in words how happy I was to be a part of Mi pop festival. Hope to see more events and festivals like this soon. Here is my Mi fan club Vizag team
Selected as MIUI Forum Moderator for India Subforum
One of the best days of my life was 29th November 2016 when i got selected as Moderator for India Subforum. I was very happy that i got selected. I tried to perform well on MIUI Forum since the day i started using it. Being a Moderator was not an easy task but i love challenges, the harder we work the more success we get. I believe it that Keepingeping in mind, my parent's advice, i always tried to help others since my childhood. I try that on forum too with a numerous number of users here.
After successfully completing two months of Moderatorship, I got the Moderator of Month(MOM) award for the month of February chosen by admins. I will always try to keep the forum clean and like to help new people at any cost. Thank you for giving me a chance to write my mi story. Now my Mi story with Xiaomi will never stop.
Some of My Mi Gadgets like Mi VR, Mi Band, Mi Power Bank(10,000mah), Mi Bluetooth Speaker, Mijia Pen every Mi Gadget is awesome and these are my Cool Collection of Mi Gadgets. I don't have much of them will definitely have all the Mi Gadgets one day.
