Where is Brave data in Big Sur?!?!

upgraded to big sur, machine croaked in the middle and had to wipe the machine. i had a time machine backup and pulled my BraveSoftware folder out, which i assume has all my old data in it - but where do i put it now?
in big sur there is NO users/me/library folder. i also did a general search for folders with the name brave in the title and there’s not a single thing that shows up except the folder i pulled out of time machine.
please help!
thanks!
