Beyond her professional career, Azarcoya likes to entertain through her YouTube channel, where she shares different recipes for various dishes, including cauliflower rice and French toast. However, she enjoys cooking Mexican food the most.

Azarcoya features much of her life on Instagram, including her hobbies, such as traveling with her family, being with friends, dancing, and working out. She was even featured on Women's Health Mexico as a fitness enthusiast.
She once revealed that pull-ups were her go-to exercise at the gym. However, she also does other workouts and sometimes posts glimpses of her routines on social media.
Her love for physical activities is also rooted in her support for the Liga MX football team, Tigres. Azarcoya influenced her husband to follow the league and become a fan as well. Once, Schneider shot a commercial for the team's charity foundation alongside football star Andre-Pierre Gignac.
As someone proud of her heritage, Azarcoya ensures that she can give back to her community whenever the opportunity arises. She is pleased to support different causes and foundations that can be of help, including a fundraiser for the Mexico earthquake relief.
