Ouahabi was born in Mataró, Catalonia to Moroccan parents. Growing up, she would play futsal with her brothers and at one point joined a futsal team of eleven other boys. The first club she joined was a girl's youth team of the club UE Vilassar de Mar.
Ouahabi was thirteen when she joined FC Barcelona's youth teams in 2007. After five years of elevating through the ranks of La Masia, she became a first-team player for the 2011-2012 season. This season saw FC Barcelona Femení achieve their first ever league title win. Ouahabi was frustrated with a lack of playing time after playing a second year in the Spanish Primera División with FC Barcelona.
In the summer of 2016, Ouahabi re-signed to FC Barcelona from Valencia.
Ouahabi has played for Spain's U19 national team.
Ouahabi earned her first senior national team callup in February 2016 under newly-appointed Spain coach Jorge Vilda. A month later, Ouahabi made her senior international debut for Spain on 4 March 2016, starting a 0-0 friendly draw with Romania in Mogo?oaia.
In February 2017, Ouahabi was called up to the Spain squad for the 2017 Algarve Cup, her first call-up for a senior national team tournament. Her first international goal turned out to be the winning goal in the 2017 Algarve Cup final against Canada.
At the 2019 Women's World Cup Ouahabi started one group stage match, a 0-0 draw against China. The draw was enough to get them past the group stages for the first time in Spain's history where they would then face the United States in the Round of 16. Ouahabi started that Round of 16 match, where Spain had a convincing performance but lost 1-2 against the eventual tournament winners. She ended the tournament having played 180 minutes.
