I have a writing project. I would like advice from you. This is the assignment.
"You've applied for a specific job in your field of study. The Human Resources Department arranges an interview and tells you to bring with you a polished piece of writing for them to evaluate your writing skills. The paragraph must describe one particular experience you've had that inspired you or guided you to choose the type of position for which you applied.
Your audience is your potential employer and your purpose is to show you have thought carefully about what and/or who has motivated you toward this career choice and why. In addition, you want to convey your enthusiasm for this position as it relates to your inspiring experience. Take time to think about what your audience wants to know and strive to reach a balance between informal and formal business writing.
This is what I wrote:

My interests are do to the misdiagnosed illnesses of my father, which is the field of Medical Coding and Billing. My father had cancer, which was misdiagnosed by a doctor at Stanford Medical Hospital. He was told he just had an infection which required an I.V. of antibiotics for several weeks. My mother was told by the doctors of this diagnose. She thought it was wrong. The diagnose was documented and with incorrect coding, years later, we discovered this. This coding not only hurt my fathers health but, the insurance company that was involved would not pay for it. Since then I have been extremely curious about the profession of Medical Coding and Billing. I want to be the person who documents the diagnoses of patients. I want to learn hands on and I am eager to do so. I want to utilize my skills and knowledge preventing these kinds of mistakes to help other patients.
