Get email of the person who triggers manually the flow

I have a flow, when user right clicks on a selected item to send a request for PDF Version, it will trigger the flow to run and create a pdf then send email with that pdf attachment to the user (anyone who clicks to request). So, How could I know and get the information of the 'requestor' (the one who clicks to request) so that i could send email to that guy? below is my flow. Thank you

That person is not the one who creates the list item..

Hello @emmahuynh ,

shouldn't the flow start with a trigger 'For a selected item'? That one gives you user email address as the trigger output.

Hi @emmahuynh 

 

If you look at the run history, you will see that the email is captured in the header.

But I would have thought you could just select user email?
