Has she seen you sit on the toilet? I kept my sons potty in the bathroom. He would sit on it while I was on the toilet. He didn't always have to pee, but he did sit on it. Don't expect success right away. Try putting it in different rooms, even her bedroom. His potty has been in his bedroom and even his playroom. just give her time to get accustomed to it first. If she's not sitting on it yet, put her dolls on the potty and pretend that they are using the potty. Let her join in on the pretending.
She will get on that potty eventually. Don't worry. My son is three years old and just now potty trained. We started potty training him at 18 months. Don't expect success too soon. Try not to get frustrated with her, as she will sense this and have even more anxiety about potty training.
