PowerApps Drop Down List

List_record.PNGexisting record

I have connected this Dropdown box with a list of data values.  What I am trying to achieve is when a user edit an item with existing record value, the Dropdown box will default back to this value (screenshot above to keep value as DAN QUEK in the Dropdown).  Is there something I need to change on the DataCard.  Thank you in advance.
