It is "soy yo"! Which is super confusing to us English speakers.

@melanierinm Why is it confusing? I am a USA English speaker, and I do not find it confusing at all.

It's confusing because the literal translation of "Soy yo" to English is "I am me."

In Spanish Language you can never use "it" referred to Human Beings, unless you want to insult somebody or to insult yourself. "Soy yo" is a million times more correct, than "It is me." Do not think English is the correct way of speaking. Try to speak English in the English way and speak Spanish in the Spanish way. It is easier.

Thank you. I wish everyone else had your attitude. I am so tired of the hang up on English, when I am studing Spanish. I would also say that it is not nice to refer to human beings as 'it' in English as well.
