She says she's not afraid of anybody.
Also possible:
She says she's afraid of nobody.

In English, two negatives are equal to an affirmative statement. You should avoid using two negative words in the same clause: when not is used, none changes to any, nothing to anything, nobody to anybody, no one to anyone, nowhere to anywhere, neither ... nor to either ... or.

Next
I asked Paul whether he was going.
I asked Paul if he was going.

Where or not is implied, use whether, not if. Unlike whether, if does not expect a Yes or No reply: I shall speak to him if he comes.

Next
Being in a hurry, the door was left open.
Being in a hurry, he left the door open.

Take care to provide the logical subject relating to the participle phrase. In the sentence given, the logical subject to being in a hurry is he and not the door.

Next

As usual, he left his pen at home.
Next

Joe hasn't come also.
