Former Child Model Commits Suicide, Sparking Anti-Bullying Campaign 14-year-old commits suicide after being bullied

Hundreds of mourners gathered at Casuarina Street Public School in Katherine on Friday to farewell 14-year-old Amy "Dolly" Everett, who took her life on January 3 after being hounded online.

Dolly's death has drawn attention to cyber-bullying, with many mourners urging that more support is needed.

Friends and family arrive at the memorial service for Dolly.

Her family has blamed recent online bullying after Dolly's death last week but hasn't given specifics of the bullying or her cause of death. "You either liked her or you loved her, there was nothing in between".

Dolly was described as the "kindest, caring, handsome soul" by her parents Tick and Kate, and her older sister Meg in a statement sent to Daily Mail Australia.

Earlier this week, Tick wrote in a tear-jerking Facebook post: "Speak now even if your voice shakes".

But the brunt of his message was for those who had lead his young girl to take her own life.

"We have people come in who don't even have family and if they didn't have a hair salon to go to I sometimes wonder who would they talk to".

'This powerful message tells the dark, scary place our lovely angel had travelled to'.

Just like the original OnePlus 5T , this one also features "Dash Charge" which is the company's signature powering technology. The device is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC, coupled with 6/ 8GB RAM and up to 128GB inbuilt storage.

Dolly's death has sparked both sadness and outrage among many families, including those from rural and regional Australia.

Our aim is to educate children, parents and schools about the horrendous effect filming an act of bullying, then sharing it on social media, can have on children.

"Sort of rips your guts out when you get this sort of news, this bullying is that out of control now".

A sea of blue will envelope friends and family as they remember handsome teen Amy "Dolly" Jayne Everett whose suicide last week has triggered a national call to arms against relentless bullying.

Everett has invited the people who harassed his "Doll" to her funeral on Friday to see what they have wrought.

'Please come to our service and witness the complete devastation you have created, ' Mr Everett wrote on Sunday.

The family has asked mourners to donate to "Dolly's Dream" a trust set up in their daughter's honour, in lieu of flowers today.

When she was just six years old, Amy Jayne Everett appeared in an ad for Akubra hats, which represent Australian outback life in the same way Stetson hats symbolize Texas.
