validate Created by name

Hi all,

 

I'm new to power automated but managing to battle my way through, I've created a flow that seeks 3 different sets of approval but I'd like to add a validation before the approval kicks off. my flow runs from a create file properties, I'd like to try and validate the creator of the file, if this equals to "me" then proceed with the approval. is this possible?

in the condition field for dynamic content - what do I add there?  I want it to be dynamic so when I share the follow it recognises the user who uploaded the file
