Background[edit]

"This is Me" is a midtempo pop song with influences from pop rock and teen pop. This is the first song that Demi Lovato's character, Mitchie Torres, sang in Camp Rock with Joe Jonas's character, Shane Gray. Mitchie wrote the song in the beginning of the film, and was later heard (in an acoustic version on piano), but not seen, by Shane, who set out to search for the girl behind the amazing voice. After most people performed already in the "Final Jam" session, Mitchie sing the song (original version) and Shane saw her and sing part of the song he wrote, "Gotta Find You". The two songs are combined to make the original version, as featured on the Camp Rock soundtrack CD.

Lovato also recorded a Spanish version of the song, titled "Lo Que Soy" (literally meaning What I Am), using the acoustic version of the song, released on the deluxe edition of Don't Forget and as a video featuring her singing the song while playing the piano.
