To convert this to active voice, you would need to introduce the person or persons who did the action into the sentence.

Some thugs beat me up.

However, your original sentence is perfectly OK (except that "I" is always capitalised and you should end with a full stop). There is nothing wrong with using the passive voice, you just have to be careful not to overuse it.
