I have several budgies that are interested in me and what I'm doing.
They will perch on the chair or on my laptop.
Sometimes they choose to perch on top my head or on my shoulder.
However, none of them are truly "bonded" and have no interest in being held.
I'm perfectly fine with interacting with them on their terms.

I don't know if your little girl will want to be "finger tamed" or not.
There is no harm in trying. You can use millet or a favorite treat as an enticement.

You may also want to consider clicker training with her:

For myself, I've never seen any point in having my budgies perch on my finger and I simply use either the back of my hand or a small dowel perch if I want to move them into their cage.
