Abarca was the valedictorian of her class in high school and speaks English fluently.[7][8] Abarca is seeking a Bachelor’s degree in English and hopes to become an English teacher.[7] Abarca was still a university student when she was crowned Miss Universe El Salvador in 2017.[9]

She received both criticism and support for using cosmetic surgery, including breast enhancement,[10] to improve her appearance in preparation for the Miss Universe pageant.[11][12] Abarca says she is not ashamed.[13][14]

During the Miss Universe pageant, Abarca dressed in an elaborate costume as "Goddess of the River Lempa."[15][16] However, during her performance she tripped several times over the fake boat from her costume and couldn't finish the catwalk.[15][17][18] Although it likely contributed to her loss, she received an outpouring of support from her fans.[15]

Abarca enjoys soccer, softball, singing and belly dancing. She volunteers at a local orphanage and at her church.[4][7] She is 1.65 meters (5'4") tall, and has been criticized as being too short for pageantry.[19][20]
