Episode 12: Kate Everett – Life as a contract musterer, Dolly’s Dream, and making the world a kinder place

The Everett family are like many others in the Northern Territory – they live and breathe horses, cattle, and station life. However, their lives changed irrevocably in January 2018 when Dolly Everett, 14, took her own life after being the target of relentless bullying at boarding school.

In this episode we sit down with Kate Everett to talk about life before losing Dolly, and the Everett family’s newfound mission to make the world a kinder place.
