    Why do you want to change it into the passive?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    It is possible, but the result is not a natural sentence in most contexts. Simply converting things into the passive for the sake of it often generates artificial and unnatural sentences.
