Empire starlet and rising vocalist Serayah covers the newest edition of SHEEN Magazine. The triple threat performer shares with readers the importance of being patient and trusting the process.

“I’ve learned that a no is nothing, and that is was a part of the process, and that my yes was coming,” says Serayah, reflecting on her humble beginnings in the entertainment industry. “Embrace your no because your yes IS coming.”

In addition to her role on Empire, Serayah is now the new face of Madonna‘s Material Girl 2018 Spring Campaign.

“I’m excited to be the face of Material Girl because of everything she stands for,” said Serayah to PEOPLE. “A Material Girl is edgy, fierce and owns who she is, and she’s guaranteed to look cool in anything and everything she puts on.”

The fashion brand was launched in 2010 by the music icon and her daughter Lourdes Leon and is used to embrace female empowerment through bold colors, floral designs, and edgy silhouettes. Past brand ambassadors have included Rita Ora and Zendaya.
