She has one brother, Yulen, who is 12 years her senior. She attended two private bi-lingual schools, Edron Academy and the American School Foundation, both located in Mexico City.

She completed two years of a three-year course at Televisa's acting school, Centro de Educación Artística, before she was cast as the protagonist in the 2007 teen-oriented telenovela Lola...Érase una vez at 16 years of age.

González debuted in her role as "Lola" in Lola - Érase una vez. Then she started in cables El Rey Network From Dusk till Dawn: The Series.

In 2012, González had starred in the Televisa series Amores verdaderos - a remake of the TV Azteca television series Amor en custodia. The show premiered on the 3rd of September 2012.

Originally, Mexican producer Pedro Torres offered González the lead role of Sofía López-Haro in his television show, Gossip Girl: Acapulco, the Mexican remake of the hit American television series, Gossip Girl.

The album's only single, "Mi destino soy yo" was released in Mexico on the 20th of October 2009.

Eiza GonzálezTo promote the single, she performed at televised music festivals and concerts across Mexico.

But due to the Sueña conmigo musical tour in Argentina, González was unable to embark on a longer tour for the album or release a second single.

In June of 2011, González announced that she wished to focus on the production and recording of her second solo album.

She also revealed that she planned to spend the remainder of the year working on new music and would not return to film or television projects until the album was completed.

Eiza González"I'm getting to that age where I feel confident: This girl I see in the mirror is who I am, and I've just got to love her. I don't want to judge her."

"I want to give my body this message consistently that I'm grateful for it so that it keeps itself healthy."

"Especially in the middle of a pandemic, we realize that our bodies are doing so much to keep us alive. We've got to be grateful to them."

"This body needs to be happy by exercising, because I feel so good when I exercise. I go between three workouts. I do a lot of weight lifting with high weight, low reps."

"That's something that this Latina butt needs to get toned. I'm also training for a movie by doing a lot of intervals: cardio mixed with movement."

"Then Pilates — I swear by Pilates, and I die by Pilates. It works out muscles that I don't work out ever. Like this little one under my boob, between my fourth and sixth left ribs."

"One day a week, I eat whatever I want. That's my one rule. I'll eat brownies. I'll eat pizza. I'll eat all the foods I want to eat because that's what this body needs to be happy."

"This past year, I started finding new recipes and trying to learn how to cook. That really motivated me."

"I realized that I'm cleaning my system from the inside out, and it really began to show. It was beautiful because I've never felt as healthy as I feel right now."
