Six Month Old Kitten How To Socialize?

My kitten is about a year and a half old. I got her when she was 4 weeks old. When I first got her, she wasn’t even friendly with me and would not let me touch her or play with her (I am currently on maternity leave and can’t take care of an animal). She never will come up to my face because she doesn’t trust me yet. The last few months, ever since I took time off from work, she has gotten more socialized around people but still won’t come close to be touched or petted by strangers. How do I get this girl to overcome the fear of strangers. Any advice would be appreciated!
