In brief: Developmental point

Walking requires the interplay of balance, neurological maturity, loss of primitive reflexes and a kids desire.
There is a broad range of normal (9-15m) and i can't recall any kid whose strength was a limiting factor. Play with your daughter in ways you & she enjoy & give her some space. It will happen when she's ready.
