Why isn't it "jes, ĝi estas mi"?

La respondo povus esti: "Jes, mi estas" ĉu ne?

That would be "Yes, I am". Slightly different idea.

I'm not a good english speaker, so, what's the diference between Yes, I am - Yes, it's me?

I'd think of "Yes I am" (Jes, mi estas) as the answer to a question like "Are you awake?" (Ĉu vi estas maldorma?) and "It's me" (Jes, estas mi) as the answer to a question like "Is that you behind the door?" ("Ĉu estas vi preter la pordo")

For me, "it is" is a demonstrative pronoum and in Esperanto, it is shown this way: "tiu" or "ĉi tiu"
