    Without more context I'm afraid your sentence fragment doesn't mean anything to me.

    Please note my corrrections to your bizarre punctuation.

    Becoming the person/me you found in me seems more logical. Why would you become the other person that they found in you? You could become the person they saw in you,but that is more likely to better a better version of you.
