Was it wage or income from self employment?
Generally, you report your foreign income where you normally report your U.S. income on your tax return.
Earned income (wages) is reported on line 7 of Form 1040; interest and dividend income is reported on Schedule B; income from rental properties is reported on Schedule E, etc
she is a resident of Miami, and was told she needed to report all income from around the world but she doesn't know what form to file, which she said should be the 1040 and the FBAR?
Yes , a US person reports worldwide income , both domestic and international
Below is a requirement for filing FBAR
Who Must File the FBAR? A United States person that has a financial interest in or signature authority over foreign financial accounts must file an FBAR if the aggregate value of the foreign financial accounts exceeds $10,000 at any time during the calendar year
