What type of structure do you use when writing a cover letter to a potential employer?

I always start out with a short anecdote to pull in the person reading instead of the standard "Hi, I'm ____ from ____ University and am interested in ____ position." I've found that starting with a story that connects you to the position is much more impactful. Then in the second paragraph I will talk about the company's values and why I connect with them. In the next paragraph I pick one specific experience or project that aligns with the position and use it to talk about why I'm a good fit. And then finish out the letter asking if there is any additional information that they need.
