On 25th June, 1996, Caracas, Venezuela, Luis Pons and Anna Maronese brought their daughter Eleonora Pons Maronese into this world. She has a younger sister Raquel.

In 2015, she graduated from Miami Country Day School, and moved to Los Angeles, California.
When she was 15 years old, Lele was given her first phone, and that is when her career actually began. One of her best friends told her about Vine, the six-second video platform where videos would continuously loop until the viewer stopped them. Lele used the platform to showcase her creativity.
