Maite Perroni had a childhood like any other kid. She grew up with both her hardworking parents and siblings.

In school she was always in many activities involving acting, art, singing and dancing. She also participated as a dancer in a Disney Channel show. After graduating from school, Maite had already in mind what she wanted to achieve in life and her career, so as soon as she graduated from high school she signed up for the prestigious school that is Televisa and after signing up for a three-year course that took her only two, she graduated and landed the role of her life, in which she was going to be catapulted into stardom. She was part of REBELDE and had a minor role named Guadalupe Fernandez (Lupita), where she was going to be for only one season, but after the producers liked the way she portrayed the character, they decided to make her one of the protagonists and include her for all three seasons that the telenovela was going to last and as part of that deal, she was also included in the group where she was going to obtain worldwide fame and become one the hottest girls on telenovelas.
