Allow Requester to select Approver - Send for Approval

Hello everyone,

I am creating a workflow for getting an approval whenever a new item is added or edited on SHarePoint List. I have a unique condition, I want the requestor to type or select any person in our office 365 or microsoft environment to submit the form for the reveiw?

Is it possible?

Kind regards,
Akash.
