Have you taken the time to look through the posts on taming and bonding? They will give you the very best advice and things to try.
Reading other members training and bonding journals will help you understand the journey others have gone through to get where they are at.
Getting frustrated will only reinforce any fear your girl is feeling. Budgies can pick up on stress and emotions so wanting her to love you doesn't help anyone.
If you're not in a good place emotionally to try and bond with her, don't try and bond with her.
Having a hand raised budgie doesn't mean you get a tame budgie. There's so much work that goes into it that comes from the owner. Yes, it might help, but personality is just as important.
Not all budgies have the same personality. The same way you may have friends who like to gather and be social and may have some who prefer their own company or interacting in smaller groups. Budgies are the same in that they don't all want to be friends with us.
That doesn't mean give up.
Reading the taming and bonding section will be most helpful.
Working at her pace and when you are emotionally in the right place will help.
Accepting the limits that she has in regards to bonding with you will help.
Accept that for her, you are a very frightening, large creature, that might not do her any harm, but she is a creature that is genetically designed to be alert and fearful of predators.
Forget about what you have seen others do with their budgies and embrace the one you have.
