Parakeet - pretty much a paper weight

I really can’t say much about this bird. We got her from a friend and she was already about 4 years old when we got her. Our friend let her young daughter terrorize the bird and since we got her we have not been able to do anything with her.
She is openly hostile to us and others.
While I am sure parakeets are good birds this one has been a bit of a dud. She sits in her cage and won’t come out, and only shrilly vocalizes. I guess that had we gotten her as a chick she would be much better.
